Mrs. Olsen saves anouther relationship not worth saving
Out of all of the Folgers ads where the explicit meaning is "Folgers will save your relationship," this one has the least likable beau. At least some of the others were jerks about the coffee when it was brought up. This guy brings it up out of nowhere and ruins a perfectly good party. The more appropriate slogan would be "Folgers, it helps you keep that jerk who you're only dating because you are extremely insecure. It's better to be with him then to be an old maid. Folgers."

Wonderful film and television actress Virginia Christine became famous in her later years playing "Mrs. Olson" for Folger's, but even her presence can't make watching old TV commercials interesting or less painful.
Five stars for Virginia Christine, with one star subtracted because it's a frickin' TV commercial.
A banal, mediocre commercial. Not "bad" really, but did the internet really need so many variants of the same commercial?
Then again, at least it's better than that new ad for the Holden Commodore.
(Insert witty comment here).
I do like the dresses, though.

"Mrs Olsen Saves The Show"
Slide show time is interrupted by Barry's complaints about her wife's coffee. So naturally she turns to Mrs Olsen, who happens to be in the living room at the time. Honestly, are the wives all plagued about the coffee thing and she is the only one they can turn to? Soon the husband has Folgers, and he says "Happiness is another cup of your coffee". They Laugh.
